    Adding new users to Filemaker 9 Server



      Adding new users to Filemaker 9 Server

      Your post

      We recently upgraded from Filemaker Pro 7 to Filemaker Pro 9 Server addition.  Unfortunately I was not involved in setting up the Filemaker Pro 7 years ago, so I'm not sure the process to create new users.

      The reason for the upgrade was to allow us to expand the number of users within our company.  I still have the users and passwords from my previous version but I would like to add a couple new user accounts.  How do I do this?


      Thanks in advance for any help!

          Hi Scot,

          Thanks for posting.


          Adding new user accounts will take place in the databases themselves.  Here's a quick description of the process:

          1.  Go to FileMaker Server Admin Console > Databases

          2.  Close the database(s) by Right-Clicking (Win) or Ctrl + Click (Mac) and choose Close.  Alternatively, you can choose Close or Close All in the Perform Action drop down menu.

          3.  Launch a copy of FileMaker Pro and open a database

          4.  Go to File > Manage (FMP 9) or File > Define (FMP 7-8.5) and click on Accounts and Privileges

          5.  You can click on New to add user accounts


          Hope this helps.  Let me know if there is anything else I can clarify for you.
